CertificationPG Our Rating

In a move designed to subordinate the Catholic Church to the state, Henry II gave the office of the Archbishop of Canterbury to his close friend and ally Thomas Becket. With Becket now installed as his 'man on the inside' Henry could be forgiven for thinking that the church would more easily acquiesce to his bidding.

An intelligent and genuinely creepy adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's novel. Set in 12th Century Italy; Prince Prospero watches from the giddy heights of his castle as the plague decimates those below him, all the while contempating the delicious torture of his guests.
